Rent the Runway Announces Introduction of Plus Size Designer Dresses to its Inventory
Sep 17 13
Rent the Runway announced the introduction of plus size designer dresses to its inventory. The launch of RTR Plus, an assortment of over forty styles from five top designers available in sizes 14 to 22, is a continuation of Rent the Runway's overall brand mission to democratize luxury fashion for all women and to give every woman the self confidence that comes with looking and feeling best. The company's addition of plus sizes is a direct result of their users requesting designer apparel in larger sizes. Rent the Runway's introduction of plus size designer dresses comes just short of a year after the launch of its last groundbreaking feature, the one-of-a-kind social shopping platform Runway, which features user-generated photos of real women in dresses available for rent. Runway demonstrates the company's belief that all women -- regardless of size, age or ethnicity -- are beautiful, by prominently displaying these photos of real women on its site as models. Since the launch of Runway, over 100,000 reviews have been written by Rent the Runway customers from all over the United States. Rent the Runway now adds another layer of accessibility by bringing high end designers and the latest fashion trends to plus size women for a fraction of the retail cost. Designers Badgley Mischka, Carmen Marc Valvo and Theia, among others, created dresses exclusively for Rent the Runway, offering extended sizes of dresses already available for rent in addition to entirely new styles designed with the full-figured woman in mind. Existing plus size styles from Kay Unger and Adrianna Papell will also be available for rent on the designer dress rental site. Prices range from $50 to $200 and the assortment offers everything from classic little black dresses to sequin and lace to evening gowns.
